6.3.3 Steps per Bar

Use these controls to set the length (in Steps) for each Bar in the Pattern. This allows you to create asynchonous beats of any length. If you set the Steps per Bar to 8 for example, then the Steps 9-16 on all Step Sequencer screens get disabled (greyed out).

Use the fader for rough adjustments and the Up/Down Arrows for fine tuning.



The Timing & Measure settings in G-Stomper allow for a great deal of flexibility. However, there are some cases where the definition of a ‘Bar’ is not consistent with the intended Time Signature.

The ‘Step Timing’ allows for a maximum of 16 steps per beat. The ‘Steps per Bar’ allows for a maximum of 16 steps per bar. The ‘Length in Bars’ allows for a maximum of 8 bars per pattern.

When the ‘Step Timing’ and intended Time Signature requires more than 16 Steps, then ‘Steps per Bar’ may actually refer to ‘Steps per Beat’ or even ‘Steps per two Beats’.

In these cases, the ‘Length in Bars’ takes its definition of ‘Bars’ not from the intended Time Signature, but rather as defined by the ‘Steps per Bar’ setting. It basically means the number of pages/screens in the Pattern.

The maximum number of Steps per Pattern regardless of the Step Timing is 128.
